    Spacebar stopped working suddenly


    the space bar key stopped working. I tried the usual sticky key and restarting or uninstalling the driver.

    I don't know if its related but theres a UNITED KINGDOM KEYBOARD on the keyboard list bottom right but it doesn't show in the keyboard language preferences list , so I can't delete it.

    I guess it shows up the same time the space-bar stopped working.

    I tried Get-WinUserLanguageList in the power shell but I don't see it there.

    The spacebar worked briefly for a few seconds when windows was starting up but then it stopped.

    its a HP ZBook 17 G5 Base Model Mobile Workstation

    I updated everything..

    thoughts ?

    Windows Key + Spacebar not working


    Tried using SFC as you suggested and it went through all the steps successfully, but Windows key + Spacebar still doesn't work.

    Looked at the link you gave and I see that one of the posts with a similar problem was using an HP Pavilion - same as me.

    But it was the keyboard shortcut was working till the upgrade.

    I've not tried Andre's suggestion yet.

    For anyone else having this problem, I have to report my own problems with this and what fixed it for me. First off, the problem was on my HP laptop, as with other people experiencing this problem, my spacebar stopped working. I tried a few of the suggestions
    for fixing this problem after doing a quick google search on it but nothing worked. However, I discovered that if I pressed the spacebar down very, very hard it would still sometimes work, which made me realize it was not a driver problem but more of a connection
    problem, somehow.

    Anyway, to cut a long story short, I finally fixed this issue by applying some mild pressure (with my hand) underneath of my laptop - at the area directly below where the spacebar is. As I pressed the area underneath, I also pressed the spacebar and finally,
    it worked! I don't understand how or why exactly it worked but as soon as the spacebar started working again, I no longer needed to keep applying the pressure from underneath, it has just stayed working ever since. Weird and unexpected, but it worked.

    I recommend to anyone experiencing this problem to try this solution first as it's quick and easy and might save you a lot of time and stress. I spent hours searching for solutions and becoming very frustrated before I realized it was a connection issue
    and I guess the button was just not making proper contact with the circuit board underneath. Anyway, by doing this, I must have pressed things back into position.

    Hope this helps someone.

    Windows 10 "Left Alt + Shift" language input switch suddenly stop working. It used to work before.

    Hi Jida,

    There are a few reasons why "Left Alt + Shift" is suddenly stopped working on your computer. Since you mentioned that you already tried some troubleshooting steps, we suggest that you create a

    To create a user profile, follow these steps:

    • Go to Settings. Click Accounts.
    • Select Family & other people.
    • Select the Add someone else to this PC tab.
    • Name the user as Test.
    • Leave the password field blank.
    • Hit Next.
    • Sign in as Test user.
    Let us know how it works.
